Membership in IPMA has been the most valuable tool for me as manager of the City of Denton’s in-plant.

IPMA is an Association run by the members, for the benefit of the members. The single most important advantage IPMA has over other groups, is the fact that we do not compete with each other. What one shop does will not affect what another shop in the same vicinity does. Different customers, different missions, different scopes of work. What it does foster is an environment where help and resources are always available and shared by members
